Supreme Court upholds validity of Tamil Nadu Highways Act

The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld the validity of the Tamil Nadu Highways Act, stating that the Act cannot be struck down on the ground that its provisions discriminate or are arbitrary when compared with the provisions of the central law - the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013 (LA Act 2013) [CS Gopalakrishnan etc vs State of Tamil Nadu and ors].
